Alkapro 100 Powder is a microprilled, free-flowing dry preparation of Bacillus spp. which includes high concentrations of alkaline (serine) proteinase (protein digesting enzyme). Proteinases catalyze the hydrolysis of protein polymers into their component amino acids and peptides. While the complex polymeric protein in its original form may be practically insoluble, the amino acid components are more readily soluble or emulsifiable in aqueous solutions. Alkapro 100 Powder has many applications over the pH range of 6.0-10.5. It is extremely resistant to the effects of chelating agents and detergents, this protease is very rigorous and nonspecific in its degrading effects.
PURPOSE: As a concentrated source of hydrolytic, protein-degrading enzymes for use in industrial applications including xray film processing for silver recovery, industrial equipment cleaning and maintenance, in detergents and prespotters, and many other applications where broad range proteolytic activity is desired.
SUMMARY: Bacterial proteases are well known for their extensive temperature and pH ranges. Alkapro 100 Powder is a broad spectrum protease particularly useful in cleaning and industrial applications. Stability in the presence of chelating agents, surfactants and detergents makes it useful in a wide variety of aqueous reactions.
